Curriculum Objectives: 4
Ideal as either a guided reading session or for whole class learning, this resource gives an idea for one of so many ways that the wonderful text Window by Jeannie Baker can be used. It is well worth investing in a group set of the book as the opportunities for discussion and English work are endless. The book is a series of beautiful collages which chart the growth and development of a residential area over time from luscious green wilderness to commercial urban sprawl. There has never been a more relevant time to bring these issues up for discussion amongst young people. From structuring an exploration of inference, to provoking debate about urbanisation, this book is without limits. Look out for more from Sustainable Learning!
